Eagles Trade Matt Tobin To Seattle For 2018 Fifth-Round Pick

Howie Roseman loves making August trades to teams in need.

The Seattle Seahawks lost their starting left tackle for the season last week, and were in need of an experienced tackle. And so the Eagles dealt them a tackle with starting experience.

The Birds sent backup tackle Matt Tobin to Seattle for a fifth-round pick in 2018. The Eagles will also send Seattle their 2018 seventh-rounder.

To get any kind of compensation at all for Matt Tobin is an accomplishment, let alone a fifth-round pick. Howie actually managed to get more for Tobin than he did for Allen Barbre, who he dealt to Denver several weeks ago.

Tobin was a spare-part offensive lineman that was strictly a backup and nothing more. He had been given numerous opportunities to seize a starting role, and underwhelmed at every turn.

might miss his depth but the pick is very valuable for a guy they can replace when cut down day happens if they are not happy with who they have

If Tobin is your depth then you are in trouble

Howie does it again.

We have a first, and three 4th round picks and 2 fifths. We also have Kendricks.

Plenty of Ammo to potientially move back into the second or third round

hopefully the starting 5 oline men stay healthy and not suspended – because that will be the key to success this year. D will keep them in games and the oline will dictate if Wentz gets the job done.

Just about any team that loses a starting tackle for a significant time will struggle.
